Earth Day at SIU at the Stone House featured an art auction of donated bird houses, sculptures, and paintings to celebrate Earth Day. Shown here are a few at the live auction. My piece is shown in the background. It is a gourd bird house, collaged with earth images and stained. It has leather, dried plants, and a chalk board base to encourage recycling and less paper usage.
Artist Marie Samuel is shown above through the plant material here with donated bird house for Earth Day Celebration. Below, another view of Marie’s bird house.
